|0002740||Doomseeker||[All Projects] Suggestion||public||2016-05-24 11:30||2018-09-02 08:41|
|Platform||x64||OS||Windows 10||OS Version||10240|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0002740: WAD Aliases should be markable as equal|
|Description||I use Doomseeker in portable mode. All my WADs/PK3s are stored in .doomseeker subfolder. Everything is fine, except that aliases don't work for me. I tested this with WAD and PK3 files because i expect aliases to work the same way for them.|
|Steps To Reproduce||1) Start Doomseeker in normal or portable mode|
2) Join any server with custom WADs and let Wadseeker download it
3) Close game and verify that Doomseeker sees WADs for that server (they are green)
3) Close everything and rename any WAD
4) Rename any of the WADs manually
5) Doomseeker - Settings - WAD Aliases - create an original name alias for renamed WAD
6) see that aliased WAD is red for the given server and Doomseeker wants to download it again
|Additional Information||I'm creating a portable setup for computer club with Zandronum 3 and Project Brutality multiplayer with hi-res stuff, patched UDV, etc. I can give you any of my configs or full archive without WADs if you fail to reproduce this.|
|This is an issue because currently i see Zandronum servers with "Project Brutality 2.03.pk3", "ProjectBrutality2.03.pk3", "Project_Brutality_2.03.pk3" - all the same, and to make them playable i need to copy-paste 172MB file three times!|

The aliases work. You just pointed out they're not taking your use case into consideration. Instead of treating all aliases on the list as equal, only the original WAD name is being aliased.
For example, consider the default alias configuration. plutonia.wad has freedoom.wad and freedoom2.wad aliases. If server requires plutonia.wad but you don't have plutonia.wad and only have freedoom2.wad, Doomseeker will allow you to use freedoom2.wad as a replacement. However, if server requires freedoom2.wad but you only have the original IWADs (tnt.wad, plutonia.wad, doom2.wad) then Doomseeker will never suggest to use one of them in lieu to freedoom2.wad.
This was done deliberately to allow people who cannot obtain original IWADs to play using the Freedoom IWADs.
Your use-case also has merit so I will implement it as a separate feature.
|So they just work in reverse way? I'll test this, thank you for the explanation. Maybe you don't need to implement anything new, just tweak interface or give an example in docs to make it more obvious.|

I just tried to use aliases as you described and it perfectly worked. So if different servers use same WAD under different names, one needs to write a bunch of aliases
"server1_WAD <= your_WAD"
"server2_WAD <= your_WAD"
Quote from Zalewa
Will this still be implemented? I would not do what the filesystem doesn't already do (and admitted, Doomseeker already forgives capitalization). Aliases are enough, in my opinion.
I also hardly see this to be an issue today.
